Recently, I was given a review copy of the new e-book The Gelatin Secret: The Surprising Superfood That Transforms Your Health and Beauty by Sylvie at Hollywood Homestead. I just love this e-book: it is well-researched, detailed, and very beautiful! The layout is very appealing and the photography is just fantastic -- you will want to gobble up all the recipes as soon as you see the photos! Also, there's nothing worse than reading a poorly formatted e-book. This one is very well-designed and is easy on the eyes.
I've been talking a lot about gelatin recently, as it is part of my leaky gut healing prescription. I've been consuming gelatin in homemade bone broth, gummie & "Jell-O" snacks, in pudding, in pancakes, and as a binder in certain main dishes like meatballs. I'm actually quite grateful to have received this book when I did, as it has given me a renewed enthusiasm for consuming gelatin in some form or another every single day and has helped me to stick to my prescribed regimen.
The thing that really struck me about The Gelatin Secret is how comprehensive it is. It's 150+ pages long (!), with a VERY impressive references list (something quite important to me). The book is organized thoughtfully and is split about 50/50 into informational sections and delicious recipes.
The first half of the book is devoted to teaching you what gelatin and collagen are, where they come from, how they've been traditionally consumed, and why they are so important for our bodies. I even learned a few new things about how gelatin consumption can affect our health! In this e-book, you'll learn how gelatin is good for:
- Bone Health
- Joint Health
- Gut Health (most important and relevant to me, right now!)
- Blood Sugar Regulation
- Brain Health and Mood
- Hair, Skin, and Nails
- Dental Health
That's an impressive list, right?!
After teaching you how amazing it is to regularly consume gelatin, Sylvie then shows you that gelatin is a delicious addition to your diet. Just take a look...
The Gelatin Secret: Recipes
If I asked you to name a food you can make with gelatin, I bet you'd say: Jell-O! But there are SO many other ways to incorporate it, both sweet and savory. Of course, a gelatin snack like Jell-O is one of the most popular, but gelatin is also found in homemade bone broth made with skin and joints that's been allowed to simmer long and slow.
Bone broth can be consumed alone and used in a wide range of dishes, not just soups, and Sylvie gives you plenty of delightful recipes and ideas for using it. And, if you are totally new to making broths at home, don't worry -- she'll teach you how with detailed tutorials.
I made the strawberry lemonade gummies and they are delicious! I need to buy a nice silicone candy mold for the next time -- they are just so darn cute when they have fun shapes!
The Gelatin Secret is a wonderful addition to any natural health library, and I think it is especially well-suited for anyone looking to improve their gut health. If you are being treated for leaky gut, I bet your health practitioner prescribed daily gelatin, just like mine did. This e-book will get you all fired up to stick to such a regimen and will also give you lots of yummy recipes to get you started and keep you from getting bored!
